Do Qualifications Matter?

I just read an interesting article about Obama's intended Supreme Court Justice nominee (you can read it too at It appears his nominee, Elena Kagan, has never spent time being a judge. One would think that this would be a requirement for such an important position.

This article got me thinking about qualifications as it pertains to our business. I know our qualifications at Gannon Roofing Supply are put to the test everyday. Standard practice seems to be getting a delivery out at the drop of a hat, doing a take-off and providing a bid on a large project with a one hour deadline, or providing a roofing solution to a property owner in distress.

Hopefully this article gets you thinking as well. Regardless if you are a homeowner looking for a contractor, or a contractor looking for quality products and industry knowledge, please.....please......qualify qualify qualify!
